There have been some big changes in handlaunch and F3K glider flying techniques and technology and I've developed a new Handlaunch Master Class educational series which will help you learn about the latest flying, building, and design trends which are having a big impact on the sport.

Taught by U.S.national F3K glider champ Bruce Davidson, this first 2 hour DVD program covers everything from plane set up and preparation to the latest discus style wing tip launch techniques. Bruce is not only a talented soaring pilot but also an experienced teacher who explains and demonstrates subjects clearly so you can quickly learn and apply the lessons to your flying.

Bruce starts out by sharing his methods of setting up his glider for the smoothest possible thermal circle and also the highest launch altitude. This tutorial includes radio programming tips, center of gravity adjustments, aileron differentials, and how to keep your glider from having hardware failures.

Handlaunch gliders are now launching up to 200 feet high, and Bruce demonstrates how the discus launch technique works and how to maximize your launch energy no matter what your age or skill level. Slow motion video shot from many angles helps you see his finely-tuned launch mechanics so you can copy and practice his technique.


Flying without a rudder is a hot new trend and Bruce shows you the advantages of going rudderless and the specialized tuning it takes to make this all work. It really works! You will see Bruce fly his Sirius, an all carbon rudderless F3K model designed by Europe's top champions.hlgmc_quote3.jpg

You will also learn some great air reading and thermaling tips from the extensive flight demos Bruce flies with full commentary so you can understand how and why he flies the way he does. Other flight demos show how to find the optimum CG and decalage, cambering, cross wind launches, finding lift downwind, and practice workouts. If you are flying contests or are thinking of entering one to test your skills, the Master Class will help you develop the skills you will need to stay off the bottom of the score sheet.


Don't be intimidated by the DVD's high performance content because there is plenty of good information for the beginner and intermediate pilot. If you have studied my HLG Pro Clinic, you are totally ready for the HLG Master Class 1.
